Liverpool and Cheslea have been warned off of Fiorentina star Stevan Jovetic, after his club claimed he was central to their plans for the future.


The Blues were monitoring the progress of the Montenegro international, according to The Mirror, and the Anfield club have been linked with him in the past.


The 22-year-old has been sensational this season despite the poor form of the Viola and has scored 14 goals in Serie A, but it doesn’t look as though the Reds or the Stamford Bridge club will be able to persuade them to sell.


“We want to build our future around Jovetic,” club administrator Sandro Mencucci told Gazzetta dello Sport.


“He has a contract until June 2016. Being a great player, it's normal that several clubs are monitoring him.”


Jovetic joined Fiorentina in 2008 from Partizan Belgrade for a fee of around €8million and has been steadily building a big reputation with the Italian club.


Liverpool may have altered their transfer targets anyway after manager Kenny Dalglish was sacked by the club’s owners Fenway Sports Group on Wednesday.


Chelsea are suffering from similar uncertainty with Champions League qualification as yet undecided and no indication of whom Roman Abramovich will appoint as permanent manager.
